A young boy named Milo gains a deeper appreciation for his mom after Martians come to Earth to take her away.
This is Seth Green and Mindy Steerling's second film together after the Austin Powers trilogy (1997-2002).
NASA scientists are excited over recent findings by the Mars Rover of fossilized organic compounds on the surface that indicate at some time in the past there may have been life on the red planet.
Milo's weight was less on Mars than Earth, which would be correct. However, when Gribble and Ki are on Earth, their weight should be higher than on Mars - by a factor of approximately three. This would have made it impossible for them to walk or really move around much at all.
The Walt Disney Pictures logo is tinted red for the final eight seconds to make it seem like the logo takes place on Mars (the sunset sky behind the castle morphs into reddish browns).
